Surinder Amarnath Bhardwaj audio|Surinder_Amarnath.ogg|pronunciation (b. December 30 1948 in Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh) was an Indian Test and One Day International cricketer.

Amarnath was an aggressive left-handed batsman who performed extremely well at Indian domestic level but was largely unable to cement a regular place in the Indian national team. He played only 10 Tests and 3 ODIs for his country.

Indian cricket writer Partab Ramchand wrote " [Amarnath] was given a raw deal by the [national team] selectors". On his batting ability, " [he was] an aggressive batsman, [a] bit flashy but when in full flow he was a treat to watch and could decimate even the best of attacks." He scored a century on his Test debut against New Zealand in January 1976.

Making his first-class cricket debut as a fifteen year old in a career that spanned from 1963 to 1985, Amarnath scored 8175 runs at the impressive batting average of 40.47.

His father Lala and brother Mohinder also represented India at Test level.
